Rachel completed a research fellowship in 2016, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The emphasis was on developing individual level statistical models that make it possible to fundamentally correlate the wealth of detailed individual level data being collected on a huge range of animal populations. Rachel is a member of the School's Athena SWAN Committee and co-author, with Professor Byron Morgan, of the textbook Analysis of Capture-Recapture Data.

Statistical ecology, working closely with ecologists as well as statisticians, developing new statistical methodology for the modelling of ecological data. Rachel has worked extensively with multi-state capture-recapture data and has a particular interest in goodness-of-fit assessment and model selection strategies for complex data sets. Modelling population dynamics, integrated population modelling, and citizen science are also areas of interest.back to top
